Opening times

We are open again. Welcome back.

A Happy 2023 to everyone!

Our current regular opening times are Mondays to Fridays 10.30am to 3.30pm.

Please contact us if you would like to volunteer to work in the café or to support us by doing home baking or doing laundry. Thank you.

Volunteers wanted for The Link Café!

The Link Café is managed and run by volunteers like you! Please come and join us!  Some people who previously gave their time to The Link Café are not able to return so more volunteers would be very welcome. Working  in the kitchen and serving customers is only part of what volunteers can do. We are also looking for people to join a rota to do laundry (tea towels/ aprons) and to bake cakes and biscuits. You can claim expenses for these.

The future of The Link Café will always be dependent on new volunteers coming forward so if you, or anyone you know, would like join us even a few hours of time, behind the scenes or in the café, please contact us here

Our Recipe Book

In 2009, to celebrate our 20th anniversary a recipe booklet was compiled with the help of  our volunteer bakers and soup-makers.

 A new booklet was compiled in 2022. It contains recipes provided by volunteers. Some are used in the café and others are favourites our volunteers cook at home and wanted to share.

Copies of this new booklet are available at The Link Café – price £2.50.

A couple of our recipes are featured here on this website for you to try out at home. We hope you enjoy trying out the recipes or better still come and enjoy them ready-made for you at the Café.
